the election, and four days after the tape came out in 2004, george w. bush went on to beat john kerry in the presidential election that year by less than three points. there is, thankfully, no chance of osama bin laden releasing a videotape this year, because he is dead as a door nail. but we did have an october surprise of a different sort this year. with this giant devastating storm hitting the most densely populated part of the united states. and it really is almost no precedent in american politics for something this large happening outside the political sphere, something this large happening this close to when we vote in an election that is this close. there are only a couple of other instances in our history when anything like this has happened. lots of people, of course, are asking how this disaster on the east coast could affect our election. honestly, the answer is we do not know. there is not enough relevant historical precedent to study in order to come up with a historically well-informed answer to that question. the sample size is just too small. we cannot say at this poi
. george bush, bill clinton tao too. george w. bush put it in the bowels of the homeland security. then remember what happened with katrina. >> bill: down in san antonio hello, kathy. >> caller: good morning, bill. thank you for giving us a sane alternative. >> bill: to you know what. yes. >> caller: i wanted to say one of the problems was -- >> bill: hey, turn your radio or tv down in the background. >> caller: sorry. >> bill: little distracting. that's it. all right. >> caller: there are problems, situations that are too vast for the states. one being -- which was one i think one of the first accomplishments of the obama administration was the development and the dissemination of the vaccine for that new virus that popped up, h1n1. it killed the group in between and that was an unbelievable accomplishment and the democrats never brag about it. >> bill: i forgot about that. but there are many, many, many roles where things -- look at our federal interstate highway system, right? look at the air traffic air-t
absolutely care. barack obama said george w. bush signing statements and he made the executive branch too powerful, but it turns out he didn't have a problem with executive orders and signing statements, he had a problem with who was doing it. we and independents in florida want a president who will stay within the parameters of the legitimate authority of the presidency. president obama is not pressing independents in florida by running on bill clinton's record and blaming george w. bush. independents are saying, what about your record, mr. president. >> we'll talk a lot more about the undecided states of america not hour. be sure to stay with us for that. we'll talk about new hampshire, the four electoral votes there could really be the difference in this historically close race. >>> this is a story that has a lot of people. we have the latest on malala, the 15-year-old girl shot by the taliban. s everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all
brooks was a deputy secretary of state under president george w. bush. nick burns, form he undersecretary for political affairs on the democratic side. and republican. good to see both of you. let me ask you your reaction first to this. to suzanne's reporting what the cia says happened. >> as a cia alumni, i'm not surprise told at the bravery of these officers. these people have been at war for many years now and their bravery is no surprise whatsoever. i'm sure they did what they felt they needed to do to protect their colleagues as well as other americans. i think we're deeply indebted to them. >> nick, ely lake from the daily beast, i know you're familiar with his reporting. he's done some fantastic reporting. he's saying the state department never requested military back-up the night of the benghazi attack. normally that would have been the responsibility of the ambassador who of course was in the heat of the moment there. so that then would have fallen to the state department to make that decision, and as we know, they could hear it in real-time. does this surprise you? >> you know,
. >> peter brooks a deputy secretary of state under george w. bush, and nick burns, former undersecretary for political affairs on the democratic side. and republican. let me ask for reaction first, peter. to what the cia says happened? >> i'm not surprised of the bravery of these officers. these people have been at war for many years and the bravery is no surprise whatsoever. i'm sure they did what they felt they needed to do to protect their fellow colleagues as well as other americans, and i think we're deeply indebted to them. >>> eli lake from "the daily beast." he has done some fantastic reporting. saying that the state department never requested military backup the night of the benghazi attack. normally, that would be the responsibility of the ambassador. that would have fallen to the state department to make that decision and they could hear it in real time, does this surprise you? >> you know, erin, i have to say, as i said before, and as you know, i served not just in democratic administrations, but republican administrations, including for george w. bush, i really find it distu
is i've put out fewer regulations than george bush did. some were significant. obviously, dodd/frank, welfare -- wall street reform is a big example of that. but i have actually initiated a whole process to look back at all the old regulations to see, are there ones that don't work? that should be a project republicans are happy to work with me on. because if we're going to streamline government, we should do it smartly. i've said that i want to consolidate a whole bunch of government agencies. we should have one secretary of business instead of nine different departments that are dealing with things like getting loans to sba or helping companies with exports. there should be a one-stop shop. now, the reason we haven't done that is not because of some big ideological difference. it has to do with congress talking a good game about wanting to streamline government but being very protective about not giving up their jurisdiction over various pieces of government. so there are going to be a whole bunch of things i think we can work on. the first thing, though, is let's go ahead an
. among those photographed are george w. bush abdul michael dukakis and richard depp -- gephardt. and encore presentation of books now.a c-span: arthur grace you have a new book out called "choose me" portraits of a presidential198 race."7ou where did you get this idea? >> guest: well basically it was an idea that newsweek came up with in early 1987 around last january, early february. they wanted to do something different with the presidential candidates. portraits but not... they weren't sure what they wanted to do but just a different idea.y r so newsweek picture editor karen mclarkey approached me and saido do you have any ideas on this. what would you like to do? and i thought about it and i came up with this concept ofd i doing in black and white in a two and a quarter format without strobe lights, using only available or natural light. and we tried it out first witht gary hart. we went out to -- i believe it s was cleveland early on in february of 1987 and i had the first assignment out there.wa i came back and showed them the photographs and they were veryhe pleased with
in watergate. the president blaming george bush for the economy. the numbers tell a different store store then donald trump made the president an offer he couldn't refuse. donald trump picks up the phone when we call him in the top of the hour. >> i know some people are nervous about the storm about to hit the coast and our thoughts and prayers are with the people who finds themselves in harm's way. jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh. [ female announcer ] ...without swanson. the broth cooks trust most when making soup. mmmm! [ female announcer ] the secret is swanson. introducing the new droid razr maxx hd by motorola. now more than ever droid does. starts with ground beef, unions, and peppers baked in a ketchup glaze with savory gravy and mashed russet potatoes. what makes stouffer's meatloaf best of all? that moment you enjoy it at home. stouffer's. let's fix dinner. >> gretchen: welcome back everyone. the president blames the bad economy on predecessor g
me now is howard dean and joe watkins, former white house aide under george w. bush. >> good to see you, alex. how are you? >> i'm well, thank you. >> governor dean, look at this first republican endorsement since 1972 from "the des moines register," after president obama wasn't able to meet with the editorial board in person. do you thiyou think that had an influence. i spoke with rick green, he said it didn't. >> petulence is a major factor in newsrooms. look, they endorsed john edwards in the '04 primary. endorsements don't matter very much in races like this. they matter in down ballot races where people don't know them very much, but i don't think anybody is waiting to decide in this incredibly close election to see what "the des moines register" does. people read editorials because they are written by smart people, but they are read by smart people as well. >> i spoke with anne cornblunt, and she brought up that the tribune in salt lake city endorsed president obama. that state is going red, we know that. but in the state of iowa, sir, a small percentage of people still undeci
cheney or george w. bush. peace, peace, peace, the new mitt, would have the new nixon in 68y. i mean the new improved mitt, he did the same thing on iran sanctions. he was talking about an aerial strike, he was talking about an invasion, attk un ian a recently as months ago. and now he is saying oh i'm all for sauntions. we have to do it peacefully and diplomatically. so i mean who is this man. you know, that is -- >> i feel like we're coming to the end of this campaign with the two large questions unanswered, crucial questions. would mitt romney buff the republican party at any time if he were elected president. and secondly, does barack obama have sort of a second wind, a second burst of policy creative. >> woodruff: he did put out this 20 page. >> but that was a rehash statement of his. if y go to what he ote in 2007, i bet most of those things are in that 2007 book. and so they're fine. you know, community colleges, more math and science teachers and all that stuff. but it's not exactly a huge agenda. so you are a voter. you are trying to imagine what is the next four years going
presidents. we saw that with katrina, for instance, and george w. bush. >> woodruff: dan, what about a role for governor romney at a time like this? >> well, it's minimal at this point. i mean he really has to remain essentially invisible. he can't look like he's trying to do anything to exploit the politics of the moment. so in a sense there's more potential up side for president obama, but as susan said more potential down side for governor romney i think it is a matter of just kind of waiting and watching and then deciding at what point he can go back out. i mean one of the issues is, does this short circuit kind of the surge of energy that we've seen around the romney campaign? there's no question that there is more energy out there in the republican base and at events he's been holding. does this affect that in some way that would be detrimental to him? these are all he questions that we can't answer tonight. >> woodruff: because we just don't know when they're going to be back on the trail. there's no way to gauge that. >> that's exactly right. i mean, we obviously know they'll be bac
. on the other hand, george bush 43 had his best moment, i always thought, at ground zero when he put his arm around that fireman that day and said, "i can hear you, and they're going to be hearing you in other parts of the world." that was enormous symbolism for the country, reassuring, in command. and at the same time, it said we're going to act here. and governor christie is a jersey guy, through and through. and what we're seeing in the last 24 hours with him, i think, is what i've seen with him over the last couple of years, wherever he's appeared. i didn't think he had the greatest keynote in the world, but the fact is that he is what he is. when he began to raise hell with the mayor of atlantic city for not following his orders, saying i don't give a damn about the election, i think people respond to that, democrat or republican. >> because it's real. president bush, you mentioned that moment as well as the first pitch soon after -- >> at the world series, incredible. >> incredibly symbolic and brave on a number of levels. he probably shouldn't have done it, but he did it. >> these kin
